As long as you use brand hub-centric 3-inch wheel spacers on an F150 truck, they won’t cause shaking. Most wheel vibration problems are blamed on lug-centric wheel spacers. A lug-centric spacer means there is a big hole in the middle. The lug holes are also made larger to fit a variety of vehicles. Without a snug fit, these lug-centric 3-inch F150 wheel spacers are centered on the vehicle’s hubs only by wheel lugs. If you are using these cheap spacers, there is a high risk of wheel shaking.
In addition, loosening wheel nuts are the most common factor that you might experience in a shaking wheel. If your 3-inch F150 wheel spacers are not tightened properly, they may loosen overtimes. The first thing to check in this situation is whether or not all of your 3-inch F150 wheel spacers are properly fastened. To test the loose wheel nuts, lift your vehicle and then hold one wheel with hands at the top and bottom of the wheel and then try to shake it. If the wheel moves easily, the wheel nuts may be loose.
What F150 3-inch Wheel Spacers Can I Trust?
When choosing safe F150 3-inch wheel spacers, material selection can be very important. Considering the strength and rustproof needs, billet aluminum is more suitable. BONOSS forged active cooling F150 3-inch wheel spacers are made of forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 aluminum alloy. The tensile strength is up 572 MPa (al7075-T6). They are high-performance aluminum alloys that feature good corrosion resistance, weldability, workability, and machinability.
After BONOSS’s unique super forging process, these F150 3-inch wheel spacers provide stronger impact resistance, less fatigue strength, longer service life range, and better corrosion resistance. Additionally, the spacer’s structural integrity is not compromised. This gives BONOSS forged active cooling F150 3-inch wheel spacers inherent strength and durability. Therefore, BONOSS forged active cooling F150 3-inch wheel spacers tend to have greater overall vehicle performance and enhanced fuel efficiency.
Are Stud F150 3-inch Wheel Spacers Safe?
Since the wheel studs and lug nuts use a clamping force to secure the F150 3-inch wheel spacers and wheels. If the studs or lug nuts are not strong enough to support this force, they will likely be bent by road impacts. The provided wheel studs of BONOSS F150 3-inch wheel spacers are made of high-strength forged SCM440 alloy steel. They have achieved ISO standard grade 12.9, tensile strength ≥ 1,220MPa, ultimate tensile load ≥ 152,000N, hardness (HV) ≥ 395, and NSS ≥ 500H. With higher strength, your F150 3-inch wheel spacers can bear more force without breaking.
Particularly, the provided wheel studs and lug nuts applied the superior Dacromet surface treatment process. This type of coating gives salt spray resistances exceeding 500 hours. Most importantly, Dacromet coating does not induce Hydrogen Embrittlement, which means that high-tensile components like wheel studs and lug nuts can be safely coated. It is an excellent surface treatment of connection elements and safety components in automotive components and accessories. So, it is a good idea to upgrade your pickup truck with BONOSS forged active cooling F150 3-inch wheel spacers.
